Our CSR policy
Catering is a craft. At least, that’s how Fleur de Mets has tackled the business for nearly 20 years now.
So, it’s only natural that we approach sustainable development with that same vision.
In other words, we engage in CSR like artisans. That means we uphold our commitments day in and day out, by steadily improving thanks to the lessons yesterday brought, by balancing pleasure and need, and by remaining solid, real and authentic.
Because we aim to better protect the planet and safeguard the future of the event sector, we work alongside our clients and our suppliers, rolling our sleeves up to create positive-impact events.”
